Speaker: Dr Emel Aktas CMILT, Senior Lecturer, Cranfield Supply Chain Research CentreEmel has been working on various research logistics and transport projects. her recent work includes a project named "U-Turn" which is about logistics and transport in big cities and how collaboration among retailers and 3PL's can make future retail deliveries sustainable. She will also address some of the potential impacts of Brexit on local logistics.Increasing urbanisation affects lives in cities, in particular in food distribution. The European food retail industry grew by 2% to $1,745 billion in 2014 with an expected increase of 12% by 2020. Retailers can reduce transportation costs by adapting shared / collaborative logistics techniques to entertain economies of scale and better utilise their fleet. It is possible to analytically show cost savings and reduction in environmental impact in terms of CO2 emissions, noise and pollution from collaboration and consolidation of freight. However, for collaboration to be sustainable, consumers should receive the same or better delivery service whereas retailers should observe significant decreases in their operational costs.About the Speaker
Emel has BSc, MSc and PhD degrees in industrial engineering from Istanbul Technical University, Turkey. She began her career at Istanbul Technical University as a research and teaching assistant. She worked as a visiting researcher at Wayne State University, USA and as a lecturer at Dogus University, Istanbul, Turkey during her PhD studies.

From 6th April 2017 there will be a significant change in the funding of apprenticeships in the UK which will have a major impact on organisations that plan to employ apprentices after this date.
The new approach to funding will see all organisations operating in the UK with a salary expenditure in excess of £3million, paying a levy of 0.5% of their total pay bill to the HMRC. This approach is a game changer in the apprenticeship funding process. Businesses who fall into this new levy funding process will need to understand the impact this will have on their apprenticeship recruitment in the future. Furthermore, it is important that organisations know how they can derive optimum value from their levy pot.
With the introduction of the Trailblazer Standards, apprenticeships are becoming more job or vocational focused than ever before, whereby the employer will have more input into the training and development the apprentice will undertake throughout their respective programme. Again this is another radical change that all organisations that are involved with apprenticeships need to be aware of in the future.
Following lunch, delegates will be given the opportunity to discuss the changes and challenges to their respective organisations with fellow delegates in a workshop environment.
At the end of this event, delegates will have a clear understanding of the changes that will be introduced in the apprenticeships from April 2017, and be able to develop a more effective and value driven strategy in their apprenticeship programmes.

Speaker: Professor Richard Wilding OBE FCILT, Full Professor & Chair of Supply Chain Strategy, Cranfield School of Management and CILT Chairman
In a world where supply chains compete, social supply chain concepts are increasingly important to sustain progress. Supply chain strategies require effective processes, robust infrastructure, responsive information systems and collaborative communities to be aligned with the mission of the business. The Social Supply Chain utilises social networks to manage risk, build supplier communities and identify new markets and customers. Professor Wilding will explain.
